Here are some quotes...
"There was a time when the Beatles's lyrics were one of their greatest attractions. Not any more. On ``Abbey Road,'' you get only marshmallow...On ``Abbey Road'' the words are limp-wristed, pompous and fake. "
two songs by George Harrison, mediocrity incarnate;
``Abbey Road'' medley remains a triumph. Having said that I must also say that the rest of this album is unmitigated disaster.
`Oh! Darling''...the kind of thing that the Platters or the Penguins might have done. Lennon has always had a terrific voice, and here he halfway tears his lungs out.
Counting the unreleased ``Get Back'' album, the Beatles have cut upward of 60 tracks in a year, and at least two-thirds of those have been dead wood.
